Science Survey 2020

 Three years ago I created the ‘science survey’ challenge to make myself read more widely in science,  and I’m pleased to report that not only did I complete the survey halfway into the year, but I was able to go well beyond my goal of twenty to read a RECORD SETTING 30 BOOKS.  I anticipate another strong year next year, though probably not this many!

    …again, *lots* of interests in common and…. not a single correspondence to anything read or in my TBR! [lol]

    what was Tyson’s collection of letters like?

    • Most underwhelming! I’ve read most of his work and was disappointed in the collection….it seemed to appeal most to people who just liked Tyson and would read anything with his name on it. Some of his other work has been more purposeful..

    I’m not a huge fan of sci fi, but I really enjoy non fiction books on science. Especially neuroscience. I’m fascinated with how the memory works.
